30 Ramadan Recipes for Iftar

Ramzan ul MubarakRamzan ul Mubarak


Ramadan the 9th and holiest month of the Islamic calender brings with it a lot of cheer and blessings. It is a month of fasting, charity giving , self analysis and introspection. During this month, muslims across the world fast from dawn to dusk. The pre-dawn meal is called Suhoor or Sehri. After partaking this meal they abstain from eating or drinking till dusk.Apart from food and drink, muslims refrain from sinful behaviour like gossiping,back-biting,fighting,lying or cursing which negates the reward of fasting. People are encouraged to increase religious devotion by means of prayers and recitation of the holy Quran.The day long fast is broken after sunset with a date and a sip of water as was the tradition of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). This is called Iftar.After the sunset prayers a more elaborate meal is shared with family and friends.

Muslim women besides fasting,praying and their daily routine make delicious treats for Iftar and Suhoor for their families. Most of them would agree that preparing these special dishes is easier than actually deciding what to make. I have rounded up some interesting recipes which they can make easily for Iftar and enjoy with their families.

I am including 10 Non-veg snack recipes, 10 Vegetarian snack recipes and 10 Dessert and sweet snack recipes.

    1. Thank you dear Sheh! There is a lot of excitement and festivity in the air. In Hyderabad both muslims and non muslims look forward to Ramadan as the entire city is lit and decked up with food stalls and Haleem kiosks. After breaking the fast we can see excited shoppers all over the place, shopping for clothes, bangles ,accessories, new furniture and furnishings for their homes. You should visit Hyderabad during Ramadan.
